VARIETY AND EFFICIENCY
Marine Vessels Built for Alaska Transport
Our fleet of marine vessels have all the capabilities necessary to haul freight big or small at sea or on inland rivers. Each vessel comes with its own unique capabilities allowing us to match our customer needs and perform the required service.
The 150ft Landing Craft, “M/V Unalaq,” is one of our principle marine vessels. It has a shallow draft of 4’ to 5’ 8” (depending on load) and is supplied with all the necessary equipment for loading and off-loading cargo. On the Unalaq, we have accommodations for up to ten guests in five staterooms and a commercial kitchen and dining room. We also carry a variety of equipment suited to our unique client needs including a 19’ Rigid Hull inflatable with 90 HP outboard motor, Hitachi 110 Excavator, Masted Volvo 220 Loader (capable of carrying 40,000 lbs.), fork extensions for the Volvo Loader, and 20 DuraMatts for building roadway on beaches or other soft terrain.

Bowhead Transport has two smaller, specialized shallow-draft coastal and river lighterage vessels available—The M/V Doctor Island and M/V Crescent Island. These high-speed landing crafts are designed to provide transport, accommodate guests in an enclosed heated cabin, and carry small cargo up to 4000 lbs. Both of these marine vessels have twin Volvo engines and can cruise at speeds over 30 knots.
